• Digital Scrapbooking!

    Alright, so I've found yet ANOTHER addiction - digital scrapbooking. I've now got files upon files labeled "DigiScrap" on my computer and I'm absolutely loving it! I use the Creative Memories Storybook Creator 2 and would recommend it in a heartbeat to anyone who loves to scrap, says they don't have time to scrap, or anyone who doesn't like the mess that traditional scrapbooking creates or the space that it takes up (when my studio is finished, I'll show you just how much space it has taken up in my house!)
    So I wanted to share a few layouts that I've had fun creating... thanks for looking, and get inspired!

  • Birthday Cards

    Here is a sample of my first time using my Winnie the Pooh cartridge for a one-year-old's birthday card, and a birthday card I made using tin foil in the Cuttlebug Embosser.

    I also wanted to share my creation using Provocraft Vinyl with the Cricut and Design Studio. I designed and cut a logo for myself (to hopefully put on the back of my cards) and positioned it on the side of one of my units in the scrap studio

    Enjoy the ideas and thanks for looking!

  • Another Wedding Card

    I told you I'd get something to do with the wedding up! So here's the card I made for the bride and groom using the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.Melissa and Scott Wedding Card

  • Another Thank You Card

    It is time for a LONG OVERDUE post! I've been extremely busy for the last few months, and I'm getting ready to be busy again for the next few months with wedding mania! But weddings mean there must be scrapbooking or card making to be done (I cross my fingers!) so hopefully that will mean more updates soon.
    This is just a quick card I made to thank my teaching associate for my last placement. This was the first time I actually used my Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for the Cricut (even though I've had it for 10 months! Boy, I need more time!

  • Thank You Card

    Just a quick thank you card idea to share! I made this one with, you guessed it, the Cricut (just the "Thanks" was cut using the cutter). And again, my love of window cards presents itself!

  • Editing Pictures on Picnik!

    Sometimes (quite often!) I really just don't have time to sit down with all my tools and scrapbooking supplies and make a full layout. However, I've found a great outlet for my creativity online! I can spend as long as I want editing a picture, and it offers a therapeutic rest from a hectic day!

  • Card Ideas

    I thought I'd stick with the wedding theme and share with you some of the cards I've made. For my brother's wedding, I made the card below to match the colours of the wedding party and decor at the reception.

    For the card above, I used the Cricut to cut out my bride and groom and experimented for the first time with chalk to add some colour and shading.

    The next pictures are the outside and inside of the card I made for the fish shower I described in my last post. I've recently discovered a love of window cards so when I found the fish embellishment, I cut out a square just the right size and positioned the other fish on the inside so he couldn't be seen when the card was closed.

    My sister appreciates corny and sentimental things so I was pretty excited when I came up with the poem to include inside the card.

  • Using the Cricut for Centerpieces!

    I've decided that the first idea I will share with you is how I have used the Cricut for centerpieces. I made table numbers that were inserted in plants last year for my sister-in-law's wedding shower; one side said "LOVE" and the other side had the number on it, to help guests know where to go. They fit quite nicely with the bright flowers in the room.

    At my sister's wedding shower we focused on a fish theme. I made fish on my Cricut to put in the centerpieces (that had aquarium gravel over the soil for the plant). The fish looked like they were jumping out of the water!

    Flying FishShower Centerpieces

    For the fish themed shower, I also painted and decorated a fish bowl, and filled it with more fish (cut out with the Cricut). I stamped each of these fish with a number that corresponded with a guest at the party. When the bride pulled a fish out of the bowl, the person who's number was pulled won a prize. It was a variation of pulling envelopes with addresses on them to win prizes.

  • Welcome to My Blog!!

    Well, this is my first post of my very first blog! I was required to create a blog for a computers class (section 5!) and decided to center it around my love of scrapooking and card making. I'm assuming if you've found this blog you might enjoy the same hobbies.
    I'm hoping this site gives you some great ideas that you can scraplift and maybe spark some of my own ideas! It will be great to have some motivation and encouragement to get more projects done and posted.

    Enjoy!! (...but don't get too excited - I'm just learning and it might take me a while to get the hang of this thing!)
